Viet Grill is all about great Vietnamese food and fun cocktails in stylish surroundings. The basement dining room is moody and just a little bit noisy, so it’s a great option for groups looking for a lively dinner before hitting the bar on the high street. The upstairs is a little more civilised but still fun. The food covers the bases nicely – solid pho and cha la lot (minced pork wrapped in a leaf and fried) – but the specials are really where it’s at, so keep a look out for whatever’s on the menu that day.
